Summary
"Frank Dobie and Carl Sandburg met in 1921 in Oklahoma. The two men took to each other and enjoyed long talks together. In Austin, in March 1935, the two anecdoters got to telling each other Saint Peter at the Gate stories and compacted to collect more and make of them a little book. Shortly after the 1935 encounter, however, while the winds of talk still blew freshly in him he had written out the conversation, the tale-telling, and his own impression of Carl Sandburg. This essay, complete in itself, forms the present publication."--Bertha Dobie
